Letter to the family

Hello, my name is Samarah. I am from Springfield Illinois, America. I found out about Aupair from two friends who were actively involved in the program. One who lived In Spain and another who lived in Brazil. They explained to me that it is a good way to meet new people, make new friends, and expand your knowledge of other cultures. As a person who is very open to new ideas and experiences, I was thrilled to hear about this. Especially because the sport that I do (bmx) can be done anywhere in any country. I feel that I would be a good pick for candidates because I feel it is not just my job but a want for me to make the kids and host families feel loved and not just for me to feel as I am apart of there family but for them to be apart of mine. One of the thing I am big on is asking the parents or guardians how they want me to help raise there child. What rules and regulations should be put in place. Another thing that I am big on is that I will always out the needs of a child before my own, ALWAYS. I have more than enough experience for this opportunity in my opinion. I have worked at two daycares, and currently work at one now, I am certified as a lifeguard and have American CPR training and have a card to prove it. If you would like to see my card please give me a direct message. I have also taken on a 4 year old for a week on my own while her mother was in Dominican all while I was going through schooling. The number one thing in my interest is your child or children’s safety and to form a appropriate and loving bond with all around me and to expand my knowledge in other cultures:)

Experience

My experience so far has been a blast. Au Pair has opened my eyes to other possibilities. I would love to be more involved in this program because it would be amazing to form meaningful connections with people of different cultures from all over the world. Also just some extra information, I can speak Spanish. I took it for 2 and a half years in school and I am still learning to speak it. I use Spanish to this day to babysit some of my currents children that go to my nursery. My Spanish is not perfect and definitely needs work but I can have a decent conversation with someone in Spanish. I hope that being in a different continent really helps me and forces me to interact in a different language and help me improve in speaking more than one language.
